The Time Out Market Boston Vendor Lineup Is Getting Even More Exciting
Bisq, Mamaleh's Delicatessen, and more local flavor is headed for the Fenway food hall.
An overview of the Boston dining landscape would not be complete without a charcuterie board or two—and Time Out Market will certainly have that. Beloved Cambridge wine (-and-more) bar, Bisq, is joining the lineup at the forthcoming Fenway food hall, bringing chef Alex Saenz’s salami, terrines, and curated cheeses. Time Out just announced a slew of additional vendors, including deli favorites from Mamaleh’s; George Howell Coffee; soups, salads, and juices by Revolution Health Kitchen; Roman-style pizza by chef Michael Schlow; and locally made, artisan gelato from Hingham-based Gelato & Chill.
These six chefs and vendors join an already impressive lineup initially announced for Time Out Market Boston, including Craigie Burger, by chef Tony Maws; a la carte small plates from Tasting Counter’s chef Peter Ungár; Via Matta-inspired pasta dishes by chef Michael Schlow (in addition to the new Roman-style pizza stall); and two Japanese-inspired concepts from Hojoko chefs Tim Cushman and Rob Wong.
Now we know a bit more about those projects, too: Ms. Cluck’s Deluxe Chicken & Dumplings will take creative, Asian-inspired spins on chicken and dumplings; and gogo ya is focused on Hojoko and O Ya’s reinvented sushi, building a menu on the likes of Hojoko’s crispy nori sushi tacos, and bento bowls inspired Cushman Concepts’ signature sushi and sashimi.
There will also be outposts of Union Square Donuts, and the Eastern Mediterranean fine-casual Anoush’ella.
Time Out Market is under construction at the former Landmark Center building at 401 Park Drive, part of the development led by Samuels & Associates. A brick-and-mortar expansion of the international, editorial brand, Time Out, the food hall is meant to be an “editorially curated” selection of the best a city has to offer, said the company’s president and creative director, João Cepeda, a former editor of Time Out publications in Lisbon.
“It’s creating that magical mix where any visitor can spend 30-40 minutes and really have an experience that represents the city,” Cepeda previously told Boston. The original Time Out Market opened in Lisbon in 2014, and the company also has food halls in the works in Miami, New York, Chicago, Montreal, Dubai, London-Waterloo, and Prague.
There are still some culinary announcements to come from the Time Out Market team. Overall, the Fenway food hall will span 21,500 square feet, featuring 15 restaurants, a demonstration kitchen, two bars, and communal seating. It will have 120 more seats outside—in close proximity to a year-round, greenhouse-inspired Trillium Brewing taproom— and a calendar of cultural programming and public art. Time Out Market is slated for a late spring 2019 opening in the Fenway. Meanwhile, another gourmet food hall, High Street Place, is eyeing a fall 2019 debut in downtown Boston.
